I always want to know about the hearts that break more than I want to hear about the one who breaks hearts. I want to believe in safety and peace and wake tomorrow to know that the shooting in Marysville -- which marked the 39th school shooting since January 9, 2014 -- will be the last. I need to know this is the one that changes it all. I need to believe hearts will swell and it will never be otherwise.
Actions like this begin with a break, a shift. Be it a chemical brainwave or physical shockwave, every move leads to another. Death starts long before the safety is off.
